The Nouveau open-source driver is benefiting from sponsored X.Org EVoC work on the "Fermi Scripting Engine" to improve GeForce 400/500 series re-clocking.
Supreet Pal Singh presented his work on Friday of XDC2012 for his work on the Nouveau Fermi Scripting Engine. "The talk will majorly consist of two parts. In the first section, I will talk about my experience as an EVOC student, how I got involved and selected my area of work. Some of the early problems that I faced and I will put forward some suggestions on how to make the program better. I personally believe this is a great opportunity for students and hence recommend some ways of streamlining and publicizing it. The second section will however be a bit technical as I will describe my work. Starting with the basic setup, I will describe the need of what I did and how much I have been able achieve. This section will include Pdaemon -> Host communication and the Fermi Scripting Engine. Some details of the process will be discussed and what the future course of action is."
